Firesides with Founders (POD) – Tammie Chrin
And we’re back again this week, with another Friday Five Minute Fireside chat with a fabulous founder, Tammie Chrin from KDP 4 B2B. Just like with our last Founder, Cindy Minear, I met Tammie through conversations about Print on Demand on Clubhouse. What I really liked about her story was the amount of money that can be made using her “twist” of a method. I’ll let her tell you more…
Where are you based?
Tell us about your background…
I started my Print on Demand journey in 2018. I started with low content books like lined journals. Sales were low, so I thought, what if I create a service for business owners to develop have a branded booklet for their business like a tracker for a gym & a journal for a therapist. And that’s how KDP 4 B2B was born, which stands for Kindle Direct Publishing for Business to Business
How/when did your Print on Demand journey begin?
I have always been an entrepreneur, my husband and I knew we wanted to get out of our brick and mortar businesses. We started out selling on Amazon in 2014. My husband is still a part of the Amazon selling, more on the private label said, and I’m on the Print on Demand-side. We wanted a business that we could do from anywhere and have our companies as a part of our lifestyle.
What’s your most/least favourite aspect of creating products?
My favorite is creating branded booklets for businesses and teaching others how to create a recurring income stream with the KDP 4 B2B model. My least favorite would be the admin side of the business. Luckily you can hire experts in their field to help you with it.
Your elevator pitch: (If you have a B2C/B2B business)
Hi, my name is Tammie Chrin, founder of KDP 4 B2B, which stands for Kindle Direct Publishing for Businesses to business. I help people Harness the power of print on demand to make a recurring income stream with branded booklets for businesses.
